A Mediocre series
on December 14, 2012
Yushiro is a member of the Gowa clan. The Gowa clan is about to start a revolution. They will use a new mech that Yushiro pilots. He is also a Kai. He has the power to summon a god called Gasaraki. The Gowa clan will use these powers to overthrow the government and take control. Yushiro has a secret that he doesn't understand himself, and his brothers aren't talking. He meets a girl named Miharu. Miharu has a strange connection to Yushiro and may hold the key to understanding his purpose.
This anime has a very well written story. It's carefully thought out and has lots of suspense and mystery. A lot of people say that it's very complicated. I don't think so. It's very easy to understand if you pay attention. The downfall of this anime is the terrible character development. Even at the final episode, you feel very distant and know next to nothing about the characters. I'll give the story 5 stars, and the characters 1 star. Unfortunately, it takes solid character development and a solid story to make a great anime. Gasaraki only has 1 of those aspects covered. I can't give it any more than 3 stars. I can't recommend Gasaraki to anyone that wants to see an anime with good characters. If you don't care about that and only need a good story to be happy, then you may enjoy this series. Personally, I was very annoyed and forced myself to finish it b/c I had bought the entire set based on good reviews.
I have tried to be objective and give good information about this series' strengths and weaknesses. There are lots of people that get pissed if you give an anime a bad review. I have only been truthful. The only people that should be angry with what I said are the people that made Gasaraki. I don't want a bunch of hateful comments and not helpful votes for being honest.
